McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 59 of 140: A pint of Hawthorne Kölsch which I enjoyed at the McMenamins Barley Mill Pub in the Hawthorne District of eastern Portland. The Barley Mill was throwing a party to celebrate its opening 34 years ago as the first McMenamins pub. According to the brewer:
“This light, summery ale is a perfect blend of soft malt and a touch of spicy hop character. A light, bready flavor leads into a smooth, crisp finish. Have a pint and enjoy this classic German-style beer!” Measurements: 5.0% ABV • 22 IBUMy notes from that day read: “A pretty nice Kölsch ... has a good taste ... I would get it again!” June 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
